Well Dezzy, I've played your video of Oklahoma several times; just the first few seconds so I can hear you say Oklahoma.
You did fine on the song and didn't run out of breath playing that tremolo.

Hey Squacks, why don't you go ahead and throw your dog into this hunt. You may end up liking that chromatic.

Each challenge thread is created by a member, if they so wish it to be diatonic only, that is their prerogative, but I would say any harmonica is acceptable unless specifically requested not to be used. ;)

Yes, it is open for all chromatic postings, from anyone, (no diatonic). :)

(It was suggested to 'sticky' it, & I'm OK with that.)

If the new topic "On The Button" is only for chromatics posting.

Does that mean that the monthly songs and the alphabet tunes will

now have to be posted with a diatonic harmonica only?

Good. We need a dedicated chromatic harmonica thread. A good place for folks who play or are starting to play chromatic harmonica to post their songs.

Basically, yes, set up so that Eric knows where to post his videos.

But, yes, it could also work as a chromatic only thread, why not. :)
